Batik Krimsa Special Event


Special Event: Meet the Artists – Indonesian Batik from the Brahma Tirta Sari Studio

with Batik artists Agus Ismoyo and Nia Filam Saturday, April 27, 2019, 9:30am to 2pm Krimsa Fine Rugs and Decor, 2190 Union ST., San Franciso

Admission: Free

You are invited to join us for a special presentation by Ismoyo and Nia of examples of their art and a discussion of the philosophy behind the formation of their unique pieces. Brahma Tirta Sari means ‘creativity is the source of all knowledge’ and Ismoyo and Nia describe their work this way:” We seek to read the visual texts of traditional Javanese batiks, which are expressions of the knowledge imbued in batik’s cultural heritage and to express it in a contemporary form”.

The talk will begin at 9:45 a.m. and the artists will stay at the shop until 2 p.m. to chat and show their work.

These artists, whose work has been widely exhibited internationally as well as in the US, for example at the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C., have worked in cooperation with artists from Australia to Africa to create art pieces that speak the stories of the creators. In addition to showing images of the installation art created for special exhibitions, examples of their work will be available for purchase.
